Windows update has thrown up an anomoly that could be the crux of the problem, I had trouble with w update before but feel it was cured. when I tried windows update just now it indicated that I had hidden updates (which I hadnt) then it found a critical update for netframework 3.5 service pack 1 framework asst 1.ox86 but it was strange it had no subtance/volume/bytes etc and the download failed ?
Error Code: 0x80070663 this has failed several times because it remains in my available download shield icon occasionaly. It fails to download and repeat tries. It is the only unsuccessful download although in the history it appears several times the full description is net framework service pack 1 net framework assistant1.OX86 KB963707 Error Code: 0x80070663
the following is listed-
